I’ll admit – I thought this post would be easier to write, but as I’m sitting here at my keyboard, I’m finding it difficult to come up with the right words.No, I have been unable to confirm that Zach for Governor 2018 is in the offing.
So I’ll just come out with it – I’m handing over control of Blogging Blue to Ed Heinzelman effective February 1st. Ed’s a great blogger, but more importantly he’s a great friend, and there’s no one I trust more than him to lead this community moving forward.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here, and while I’m ceding control I hope to be a sporadic contributor as the mood strikes me, and before I sign off, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your contributions to this community, whether as a contributor, commentor, or critic, because each of you have made this into the close-knit community it is. I’ll always be thankful to have been a part of this community and for the friendships and experiences that I’ve gained because of this community, so thank you all again from the bottom of my heart.
I know as well as Zach that this can be a thankless job and at times becomes more of a tedious chore than something fun to do. We at Cog Dis thank Zach for his years of dedication at advocating for progressive causes and getting the truth out there. We also wish Ed the best of luck and look forward to his continuing the proud Blogging Blue tradition.
And speaking of Cog Dis, I am proud to announce that our little family is growing.
No, I am not talking about Lou, our second rescue from the Wisconsin Human Society.
If the gentle reader might remember, at the time that Scott Walker and his fellow Republican syndicate members were dropping not just a bomb, but carpet bombing the entire state, there was a blog by the name of Politiscoop. While the site is no more, you can still see some of their work that I, ahem, borrowed from them and some of the work that Politiscoop and I collaborated on.
Well, making a triumphant return from a successful four year gig on the Vegas strip, he's back and he's agreed to join our happy little family right here in Cog Dis. I'd expect he might be posting something real soon so make sure you keep your eyes open for it.
